Editorial Reviews

“For seminarians studying for the priesthood, the “Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin” by Leo F. Stelten will be helpful for examining Vatican documents in the original language, papal encyclicals and allocutions, publications on church liturgy, and Cannon Law volumes. This product of years of teaching, now updated, will be a happy resource in chanceries as well. The format is easy to follow and the vocabulary of some 17,000 words and phrases is quite adequate.”
–Reverend Joseph F. Downey, S. J., Editorial Director, Loyola University Press, Chicago, Illinois

“A working knowledge of Latin is important for anyone who wishes to study the nearly two thousand years of living tradition of the Catholic Church. It is essential for those who wish to study seriously the sacred sciences of philosophy, theology, and cannon law. Father Leo Stelten, drawing upon his long experiences in teaching Latin to students for the priesthood, has developed in his “Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin” a most helpful tool both for those who are beginning their study of the church’s lingua materna, as well as for those who are working to renew and improve their knowledge of church Latin.”
–Monsignor Raymond L. Burke, Supremum Signaturae Apostolicae Tribunal, Vatican City, Rome
